Paddy Whacks – The Sequel

Paddy Whacks Addendum

So, I posted this article a few days ago, encouraging people to chat about funny or silly things I have said or done.

Honestly, that was a great trip down memory lane. I had me some great belly laughs. Since you were all so kind, I thought I would reciprocate by posting some funny pictures of myself growing up.

So without further ado (feel free to click to enlarge)…


They call me Bill Z. Bub…

Yes. To quote Rodney Dangerfield, when I was born they didn’t slap me. They slapped my mother for having such an ugly child.

Me. Au natural…

Honestly. What photo show would be complete without the one photo that parents will always show your closest friends?



I really don’t know what I was thinking here. I suppose when you’re a kid, you don’t really think things through. Obviously, cops will never be caught dead wearing shoes like that.

Nor will you see them hiking their pants up in such a manner. At least, not north of Tennesee.

Pride of the Boy Scouts…

By pride I meant embarassment. I don’t know how I ever thought this was cool. I always heard that chicks dig a guy in uniform. Er…

Grown Up

The Beginning of the End…

This was one of the first big pants photos that Dave and I took. The idea was to take a photo of us in a huddle using our feet.

Don’t ask me why.

This picture makes us look far too young…

My wife lovingly took this photo because we reminded her of two childhood friends. Given that we still act like kids once in a while, I suppose that was fair.

The Moment You’ve All Been Waiting For

Never pack too light…

Yes. This is the picture of me drying a pair of underwear over the camp stove, as detailed by Tien in the comments of the last post.

What more really needs to be said?

I hope you all enjoyed my tribute to my own embarassing moments. Have a great long weekend!

  1. Worst Cop Ever? After all these years that I have known you, why didn’t you tell me your were an extra in Breakin’?

  2. Happy Birthday Jorge!

  3. Ah, the Pals picture.

    “I ‘member, I ‘member this one time, I was playing Red Rover…”
    “Yeah, and your mom yelled at you”
    “Yeah. That was good times.”

  4. Memory Lane—-it’s so cluttered, but in your case, except for the huge pants shot, pretty cute.

  5. And, Canadian guy, who is Bill Zed Bub?

  6. Thumbs: Dude. You should have knows. I mean, didn’t you see my funky fresh style play through in all those shitty movies we made?

    Court: Thanks

    Dave: Good times indeed. All we need are fishin’ poles or skippin’ stones, and we would be set.

    Lorna: Big pants is the best. Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it. As for BZB, you know him. He’s the Lord of Chocolate.

  7. Bill Zed’s dead, baby. Zed’s dead.

  8. Jorge, I’ve come back for a third look, but I gotta say, I’m still mostly speechless. And you know I wish you the happiest of birthdays, even though, after looking at these pictures, I’m not entirely sure you deserve it 🙂
    No, no, really, happy birthday, buddy.

  9. Dude, you’re brown?
    I feel so disillusioned.
    Also, I’m not sure I feel entirely comfortable seeing your naked prepubescentness without having actually met you.
    Aroused, but not comfortable.

  10. Hey, what’s that sireny sound from outside?
    Who are those men at the door?
    Hmm cops. Wonder what they want.

  11. Hmmm . . . someone’s already made the ‘young naked boy arouses me’ joke, so I’ll just say Happy Birthday, and hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow, filled with people you love.

    Always remember, Jorge – you’re an incredible guy, and you deserve whatever happiness that comes your way.

  12. Okay, I’ve stopped laughing at the boy scout picture (so cute!) long enough to say…HAPPY BIRTHDAY JORGE!

    May you have many, many more!

    Now back to the laughing.

  13. Jorge,

    Happy Birthday. 🙂 I had a little chuckle, uh, ok actually I was quite amused! The little policeman did it. You’re wonderful! 🙂

    Talk to you soon.

    I shall now go back to the top of the post and look at the pictures again and continue to giggle.

  14. All right – so you as a kid in the bathtub? YOU LOOK LIKE ME NOW.

    Especially the hair. Wow.

  15. Strange. My friend and I have several shots where we put the camera at our feet and hovered over it. And here I thought we were alone in our wackiness. 🙂

    Oh, the baby picture! I never thought that might actually be you.

  16. Holy hell that picture of you as a newborn is priceless. Did you frame it and put it on the mantle?

  17. I know you held onto the cop glasses 😉

  18. (laughing)

    I love that last picture. I find it hilarious and logical all at the same time.

    And yes. You should always bring extra extra undies everywhere. Good lesson. 😉
